Young Fine Gael stands against Registration Fees Hike

Students Will Never be Heard Unless We Vote

Speaking about the proposed hike in College Registration fees, Young Fine Gael National Secretary, Eric Keane stated, "Young Fine Gael oppose a hike in college fees because it will prevent many young people from going to college. The Tánaiste, Mary Coughlan, wants to put all the pain on the back of cash-strapped students and their families.

"The Tánaiste has said she cannot cut teachers or lecturers salaries and pensions, but yet she finds no problem with targeting the most vulnerable, students, to solve the problem of funding our colleges.

"The Government sees students as easy targets because they don't vote. The only way that student's voices can be heard is if they vote. All students not registered to vote should make sure they are registered by the 25th November.

"Fine Gael is the only party that has a policy ready to implement when it gets into Government. Fine Gael will implement our "Third Way" plan, which will radically reform the way in which the third level sector is funded. All students will have free access to college and at €500 million will be raised annually through a graduate PRSI contribution scheme, which will only be paid when students have a job and are earning a wage."
